Liaison aircraft return to Fort Sam Houston 72 years later to recognize veterans.

On November 14, 2014, Alamo Liaison Squadron performed a fly-by routine during “Salute to Veterans,” a Veteran’s Day celebration that took place at Fort Sam Houston’s MacArthur Parade Field. The flight of four L-birds included vintage Piper L-4 and Taylorcraft L-2 aircraft along with two modern Legend Cubs. The event was hosted by U.S. Army North – Fifth Army.
April 1942 – Aircraft of Flight B pass in review with elements of the 2nd Division Artillery at Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Under a newly proposed air-observation-post concept, the aircraft were based here during service tests performed at nearby Leon Springs Military Reservation (presently Camp Stanley and Camp Bullis). Successful testing led to their observation and reconnaissance roles in WWII.
